"This study has been conducted to complement the existing literature on Indonesian labour migration, with a particular focus on an evaluation of the legal system governing recruitment of prospective Indonesian labour migrants. The study focuses especially on Law No. 39/2004 Concerning the Placement and Protection of
Indonesian Overseas Workers, as this is the main piece of legislation governing recruitment, placement, and protection of migrant workers. The study was carried out through extensive desk research, with additional input provided through two consultation meetings with the Government of Indonesia. Study visits were
also conducted by IOM and a Government of Indonesia-led delegation to four key destination countries for Indonesian labour migrants: Singapore, Malaysia, Kuwait and Bahrain. During the study visits, information was gathered through meetings with government representatives of the destination countries, civil society organizations, and Indonesian labour migrants, representatives from the Indonesian embassies and consulates, academics, and recruitment agencies and through visits to shelters for labour migrants who had experienced problems while working abroad."
